Dan was a wonderful guy that we have been privileged to know for over 40 years. We have been honored to have Dan and Carol as God-Parents for our youngest son, Eric Daniel! We will never forget you, Dan. We will all strive to be a "gentle giant" as you were as we continue with our lives, spreading love and kindness to others. God Bless you Dan. Peace to Carol and all his family! We will miss you!
